Coming in 2018 is Disney’s next fairy tale mythology animated feature film, set amongst the South Pacific islands, rendered in a ‘painterly-style CGI’ (think the Paperman short): and y’all are going to LOVE IT:

The main character will be Moana Waialiki, a sea voyaging enthusiast, and the only daughter of a chief in a long line of navigators. When her family needs her help, she sets off on an epic journey. The film will also include demi-gods and spirits taken from real mythology.




This is also currently being directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, the duo who directed The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Hercules and The Princess an the Frog! So there’s that



Also, Eric Goldberg has done some hand-drawn animation tests for the film, similar to what they did for Wreck-It Ralph, so hopefully those will begin to surface as they get further into production!

My Visual Development Work from Frozen - Part 1

How about a blast from the past?

Frozen just came out, and ”The Art of Frozen” book is also available for purchase, but since I haven’t seen what is included of my work in the book yet, I’ll post a few things I gathered from the work I’ve done on the movie.

The work I did consisted mostly of character designing- mainly Kristoff and Anna, and some Elsa. I started work on Frozen I think from all the way back in 2009.

Minus this very first image of Kristoff and Anna, these images will probably be from the earliest versions. The visual development from later and most recent versions will probably be in part 2 and part 3.

These drawings are the very first designs I did for Anna and Kristoff.

As many of you may know, animated films go through various changes, which includes characters and their personalities. In this early version, Anna and Kristoff’s characters were different from who they are in the final film. 

The main cultural reference we focused on back then was a group of reindeer-herding indigenous group of Scandinavians called the Sami People. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sami_people

So I started from there with these designs, trying to be as faithful as I can to their unique and beautiful costumes. 

Some variations of Kristoff:

and Anna:

Probably the most different thing about the earliest version was the Snow Queen her self.

Here are some designs of her based off the earliest iterations:

It’s always a little uneasy seeing your old work, and even more so to share it with everyone. I drew differently, and thought of drawing differently. But seeing these drawings from 4 years ago, and how much movement has happened since then, gives me anticipation for my growth as an artist in the future. Hopefully I’ll be at a much better, different place 4 years from now too. 

Also, congratulations to the whole Frozen crew for creating such a hit. Now just comes the good part.:)
